What is on my tomato plant?

I don't think so. They don't move when disturbed, are very circular as opposed to oval and there are no holes in the leaves. They look more like extremely small leafminer tunnels. I can't even see them distinctly at 30X magnification which I think is much smaller than a flea beetle. That was my first thought when I saw them, too.

What is on my tomato plant?

Some of the little black dots are very shiny and perfectly round. I would swear they are a tiny beetle but even at 30x magnification it's hard to tell. Most of the dots are less shiny, less round, almost look like very small tomato worm feces. I'm at a loss! What is eating my plant??

The underside of the leaf appears nearly pristine and very clean. There are a few shinier dots/beetles.
